A variety of activities

Cabrillo National Monument has a lighthouse and a variety of activities to enjoy. From here, you can enjoy the plant and animal life, whale watching, and learning a little about military history. Tours are offered along designated trails, but you can also bike along paved roads. Fishing is also allowed.

Located on the edge of a hook-shaped ...

Located on the edge of a hook-shaped peninsula called Point Loma, which encloses the San Diego Bay and from where you get an excellent view of the city. The monument is not anything special, it is a statue of the sailor, about 4 meters high and supported on a column capital in the form of a Greek cross and it exceeds one meter above the head. The complex is complete with a museum of city history and the navigator. In winter it is an ideal place to see whales in the ocean.

Situado en el límite de una península en forma de gancho llamada Point Loma, la cuál encierra la bahía de San Diego y desde donde se aprecia una excelente panorámica de la ciudad.
El monumento no es nada del otro mundo, se trata de una estatua del navegante, de unos 4 m de altura y apoyada en una columna de capitel en forma de cruz griega y que lo rebasa un metro sobre la cabeza.
El complejo se completa con un museo de historia de la ciudad y del navegante.
En invierno es un lugar ideal para ver las ballenas en el mar.

El último parque de california y del país

Se encuentra a pocas millas de la ciudad de San Diego, de hecho para acceder al parque se tiene que cruzar una enorme base naval.

Tan solo a 25 millas de México, en los días despejados se puede ver la costa del país vecino. Una vez en el parque puedes visitar el centro de interpretación, donde se explica el descubrimiento así como se convirtió en parque natural.

En el interior del parque se pueden visitar varios faros, y algunas playas con enormes colonias de leones marinos.
